Three men were arrested Thursday on various drug possession charges after Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies say they found 2.5 pounds of "hydro" marijuana, 120 grams of liquid promethazine and 40 ecstasy pills, the agency announced Friday in a news release.

Detectives investigated a complaint Thursday at 12:15 p.m. of possible narcotics activity in Port Neches.

They went to The Palms apartments at 877 Ridgewood and spoke with Jerry R. McDaniel, who they say opened the apartment door to a strong odor of marijuana.

Eric C. Hernandez and Anthony M. Gants, both 21, were both arrested for felony possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

Jerry R. Daniel, 25, was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Hernandez gave deputies consent to search the apartment, where they also found a loaded pistol and a loaded AK-47 assault rifle with a large ammo drum magazine, according to the news release.
